Vitamin D is essential for the proper functioning of the human body.
There is also evidence of its strong association with fertility problems in women.
This review aims to evaluate the relationship between vitamin D and diseases affecting women's fertility

  • (polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS),
  • uterine leiomyomas and endometriosis), and in
  • vitro fertilization (IVF) outcome.

A systematic review of the literature was conducted in Scopus and PubMed for relevant English language publications since 1989.
Vitamin D influences the functioning of the reproductive system in women and has been associated with

  • PCOS,
  • uterine leiomyomas,
  • endometriosis and
  • in vitro fertilization (IVF) outcome.

However, further studies on larger groups of patients are needed to establish what role vitamin D plays in the treatment of female infertility.
